What is a Digital Flipbook?

A digital flipbook is an interactive ebook that looks just like a printed publication, but contains a flipbook animation where the pages flip and turn. Save paper and distribution costs while giving readers a more engaging experience than they would have with a static PDF. Create flipbooks in a few easy steps with Issuu’s flipbook maker, then share them with direct links or generate QR codes within the platform. 

Issuu Flipbooks offer built-in Statistics to better understand your audience, interactive shoppable links and embedded videos to boost engagement, and additional formats like Articles, Social Posts and GIFs to share on every channel. Upload a PDF or import files directly from Dropbox or Google Drive to create your flipbook.

How to Make a Flipbook:

  1. Upload your flipbook to Issuu as a PDF, .doc, or other accepted file type. You can also use our integrations with InDesign and Canva to export your designs into a Flipbook.

  2. Make your flipbook interactive by adding shopping links, a table of contents with clickable navigation, and even embedded videos.

  3. Pull extracts from anywhere in your Flipbook and turn them into short Articles for easy sharing and reading on mobile devices.

  4. Embed your flipbook directly on your website so your audience can easily find and read your content right at the source. You can also share your new flipbook across channels using Fullscreen Sharing links!

Bring your flipbook front and center.

Deliver an immersive digital reading experience using a single link that presents your Issuu Flipbook in fullscreen. Capture your audience’s attention whether they are viewing on your website or from an email link. Send readers to page one, or have them open the fullscreen flipbook to a specific page.

Customize the background display, remove ads, and experience the power of your content in fullscreen. Issuu also automatically renders your fonts to retain your unique look and feel, too.
